“On behalf of everyone at the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) and our global engineering community, we are saddened to learn of the death of HM The Queen, Patron of the IET.
"Her Majesty was an unwavering advocate of engineering and technology and graciously consented her patronage to the Institution in 1953. During the IET’s 150th anniversary in 2021 she credited those within the profession as playing a key role in solving global challenges, as well as continuing to improve the lives of millions of people all over the world.
"We’re extremely grateful for The Queen’s loyal service over the last 70 years. Our greatest sympathies go out to the Royal Family."
Sir Julian Young KBE CB FREng CEng FIET
